Would you like to rejuvenate your appearance with a single, non-surgical treatment that offers long-lasting results? PDO threads at NUSCULPT Medspa in Crestview Hills, KY can help you put your best face forward by tightening up loose skin and wrinkles and restoring youthful contours. This amazing treatment stimulates the body’s production of collagen, resulting in smooth, healthy, glowing skin.
How Long Do PDO Threads Last?
This treatment offers long-lasting improvement in the appearance of the skin, which is why it’s so popular. The PDO threads will remain in your skin for roughly six months before dissolving. After the first two or three months, your skin will appear visibly refreshed and more youthful.
By the time the threads dissolve, they’ll leave behind new collagen, which will continue to lift and tighten the skin. The effects of that new collagen often last for more than two years, which is considerably longer than the results many other cosmetic services offer.
What Happens When My Results Eventually Wear Off?
When your results eventually wear off, you can schedule another treatment.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are thinner than a strand of hair and are made of polydioxanone, a substance used in surgical sutures. They are placed just beneath the upper layer of skin in a treatment known as a thread lift. As soon as the threads are in place, they immediately tighten and smooth the skin by providing support from below. The threads also kickstart collagen production, which continues to renew the skin over time.
How Are the Threads Placed?
The threads are strings of polydioxanone that are injected with a fine, hollow needle under the skin. We usually inject them in a grid pattern to maximize the lifting power of this treatment. We’ll numb your skin before starting, so you won’t feel much as the treatment takes place.
The entire treatment can usually be performed in under an hour, and because this doesn’t involve incisions or anesthesia, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule with no downtime. During the seven days after treatment, you’ll be asked to refrain from massing or pressing on the injection sites.
How Does This Compare With a Facelift?
Years ago, a surgical facelift was the only way to effectively address sagging skin. But today’s thread lifts are an option that comes close to replicating the results of surgery without the hassle and recovery time.
Which Parts of the Body Can Be Treated with PDO Threads?
The face and neck are two of the most popular areas to address with a thread lift. This treatment can be used to smooth over forehead creases and folds at the corners of the mouth. Threads can also be used to tighten crepey skin and restore definition along the jawline or in the cheeks. Some patients have also turned to this treatment to rejuvenate other areas of the body, like the abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks, and even the knees.
How Many Threads Will I Receive?
Our approach to treatment varies to accommodate each patient’s needs and goals, but it’s not uncommon for us to place two to four threads on each side of the face and in each area being addressed.
Can Threads Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes, patients frequently incorporate both PDO threads and other cosmetic skin services into their treatment packages. Laser skin rejuvenation, peels, and facials all pair well with thread lifts. All of these treatments can’t be performed on the same day, and we can advise you on the timing of the various services.
What Advantages Are Associated with PDO Threads?
It Offers Natural Results
If you want to improve the appearance of your skin, but you don’t want to look as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment performed, a thread lift is for you. Because your skin will gradually renew itself with additional collagen production, your results will look completely natural. No one will ever know you got a little help with your skin. You’ll simply appear as though you’ve been taking great care of yourself and your skin!
PDO threads are available in different shapes that can be used to accomplish different cosmetic goals. Barbed threads, for example, are great for hooking into the skin from below and lifting it. Corkscrew-shaped threads are ideal for filling in deep creases in the skin. We can also adjust the number of threads that will be injected based on your skin and what you are hoping to accomplish.
PDO threads are a safe and FDA-approved treatment. The material used in the threads will be safely broken down by the body.
This minimally invasive treatment doesn’t involve anesthesia, incisions, or scarring. If you are ready to get your skin in shape without a lot of expense and fuss, this treatment is for you. Some have even referred to this treatment as a “lunchtime lift” because it’s so convenient you can have it performed during your lunch break and then return immediately to work.
Am I a Good Candidate for PDO Threads?
Patients who pursue this treatment should not be pregnant and should be in good overall health.
Your Skin Is in Good Shape
Patients should have healthy skin in the part of the body being addressed. It also helps if your skin is the right depth. Your skin should be thick enough to allow for the placement of the threads but not so thick that rejuvenation is masked. We’ll evaluate your skin depth during your initial consultation.
You Want To Improve the Look of Your Skin
Patients seek this treatment because they want to fight back against early signs of aging and improve the look of their skin. Many of the individuals we work with have tried moisturizing serums and maybe even other cosmetic treatments, but they haven’t been able to achieve the full results they are aiming for.
You Want a Long-Lasting Treatment
If you’re busy, and you want a treatment that offers long-lasting results without the need for follow-up maintenance sessions, a thread lift is the perfect option. One treatment is all you need to rejuvenate your skin for the next couple of years.

Staying out of the sun, keeping your skin clean and moisturized, and limiting alcohol intake are all skin-friendly tips to follow.
Do Men Ever Receive Threads?
